So shouldn’t you make sure your mattress is clean?
Free of bed bugs?
Sanitised and deoderised?
Not causing a risk to your health?
In this blog we look at why you need to clean your mattress; how often to clean your mattress, and how to do it yourself at home.
Two such types of germs include “staphylococcus aureus” and “pseudomonas aeruginos”. These can breed and lead to a staph infection causing impetigo, cellulitis, blood infections, and pneumonia, respectively.
Mattresses not cleaned regularly enough can also breed dust mites and bed bugs.
Bed bugs breed in mattresses because of their preference for carbon dioxide and warmth.
Dust mites can gather on your mattress due to excess skin from your body. After dust mites eat your dead skin, they defacate on your bedding. 1 mite can release as much as 2000 units over 10 weeks. Mite fecal matter is a very harmful allergen that can cause sicknesses such as asthma, rhinitis, hay fever, rashes and even depression.
At least once a year.
Unfortunately, many Gold Coast households only regularly clean the bed sheets and pillows, but not their mattress.
However as seen above, if you have not sanitising and hygienically cleaning your mattress regularly, then whether you realise it or not, you are being eaten up unconsciously by millions of dust mites. Plus the health risks this can cause.
It is a big effort to clean your mattresses in your home, but one that is certainly worth it for your own and your family’s health.
And you only need to do it once year.
